Stonewall Alters Christmas Celebration with Santa Parade Through Residential Sections

Stonewall Alters Christmas Celebration with Santa Parade Through Residential Sections

With careful consideration regarding the situation we have with COVID-19 and keeping with Gov. John Bel Edwards mandates organizers of the Stonewall Christmas Parade and Festival have made a few changes for 2020

Chairman Charlotte Byrd Newcome said, “We will not let COVID and mandates stop Santa from coming to Stonewall! We will simply bring Santa to the kids by going by there houses.”

With that in mind, the original Santa Parade will take the place of the street parade that circles around the North DeSoto School Campus. If you would like to participate in the event, decorate your vehicle and be festive on Saturday, December 5 and bring some candy or trinkets to throw to bring Christmas cheer to the neighborhoods.

Remembering a Hometown Hero SSG Richard Lee Vazquez

Remembering a Hometown Hero SSG Richard Lee Vazquez

When we count our blessings at Thanksgiving the majority of us are safe and warm in our homes, surrounded by an extreme amount of food and family to share it with. Do we stop and think about how we earned the celebration and enjoy that luxurious freedom? Although we recently celebrated Veterans Day, we need to stop and thank our veterans that sacrificed so much in wars the United States has fought in off and on from 1776 until our present time. Most of them were only young boys and men that left home for the first time in their lives to answer a greater cause than self worth...the love of their country.

It’s been just a little over 7 years since DeSoto Parish lost our own soldier hero, Green Beret SSG Richard Lee Vazquez, who was killed in action in Afghanistan. What seemed like a nightmare that always happened in other parts of the United States, the tragedy hit home in our community with many family and friends affected due to the loss of one of our hometown boys.

Mansfield High School Wolverine Basketball Player Trenton Colbert signed his Letter of Intent to play basketball for the LSUA Generals on Monday, November 9.

Colbert, a 6’7” Forward for the MHS team, decided to play for LSUA after visiting the school earlier this school year.

“I think Trent has made a good choice in signing with LSUA,” stated MHS Head Basketball Coach Chris Bush. “They have the best winning percentage in the State, and they have played in the NAIA National tournament for four years. Any team that consistently makes it to the national tournament at any level has to be pretty good.” Coach Bush continued about the CENLA school, “They also have a great Coach who pushes academics, community service, and faith. The focus on those three things will help to create better men and not just better players.”
